Now is the Time to Worship

In 2 Samuel Chapter 6, David found that it was the opportune time to bring back the Ark of the Covenant to Israel. David had captured Jerusalem, and now he wanted to bring back the object that represented Godís covenant with Israel.
During the Friday HomeBuilders and LifeBuilders Bible studies, we have been discussing Nehemiahís faith and confidence in God. He was obviously a worshipper of the Lord; evident in his prayers in Chapter one. How much he loved and relied on God is evident when we see his answer in Nehemiah 2:20. Nehemiah knew that Godís approval was a guarantee of victory.
The obedient worship of God in our lives is more important than anything else. When we worship God in ďspirit and truthĒ (John 4:24) we will experience breakthrough in our lives. Both Nehemiah and David were similar in that they earnestly served God and pushed on to honor Him.
The ark represented the covenant of God, and His manifest and immediate presence. It contained the Ten Commandments, the rod of Aaron, a symbol of Godís divine authority (his choice of Aaron as priest), and the manna, representing His provision.
When King David tried to bring back the Ark the first time, he failed. They had great joy and even anticipation Ė they even had a new cart made.
The problem was, it wasnít Godís prescribed way to move the Ark. The motive was right, the mechanics were wrong. God wants to be worshiped as a holy God who is knowable and personal.
Davidís next try was successful, because he followed Godís requirements in carrying the Ark, and God was pleased. Davidís worship dance (2 Sam 6:14) is a model of worship, since he was not concerned about his own dignity as a king, but rather wanted to celebrate God.
When you worship God, do you lay your burdens before God unrestrained? Do you worship Him as God who knows you and loves you, who is a personal Father?
